Re: [linuxham] getting ic-7600 to tx using fldigi, debian 6 on a Dell optiplex 755
- I've been running fine on a Dell 745. If I recall, I saw similar symptoms, initially, with the selected sound device magically reverting itself to NONE when there was a perms issue between my user account and /dev/ttyUSB0 (in my case).
As others already mentioned, make your user account a member of the 'dialout' group.
You can see why, if you cd to /dev and do a 'ls -al'. Most all of what you see there will be owned by 'root'. Some things will have group perms of 'dialout' or 'tty'. I made myself a member of 'tty' as well as 'dialout', just to err on the side of caution (probably not necessary). But you should verify that the device you're working with is indeed accessible to 'dialout'.
Whenever you make a change like this, you should logout completely (terminal session, your desktop manager, etc.) to be sure, and then log back in.

[945403.551625] usb 7-2.2.2: cp210x converter now attached to ttyUSB0
PS-- If I can't get this working with Linux, I am going to resurrect my netbook with win7 and HRD just to make sure it's not the radio.

Type dmesg at the CLI to see what port your radio really is assigned to.

I am getting rather frustrated in trying to get fldigi/flrig to be able to cause my 7600 to TX. I followed the IC-7600 how-to as submitted by Andy, ve3nvk.

Regardless of what I select, tty0-3 or any usb0-7 it goes back to NONE.

I am assuming the line marked with the asterisks refers to the USB port occupied by the radio.
The following is a line from LSMOD.
***cp210x 9679 0
I am missing something but don't know what. And yes, radio filter is set to USB-D1 and DATA OFF set to MIC,ACC.
In FLDIGI -- using XMLRPC. Port audio is USB Audio codex. I have a file called 7600.xml. Its just sitting in my DL folder at the moment because I don't know where it should be if it is even required.
Any help gratefully appreciated.
- Thank you Ed, Geoff and Paul for your replies. Using Synaptic Package
Manager to check whether I have hamlib,portaudio and libsamplerate
installed, they all show as installed. What I did was grab the latest
ones from the sites as listed in the help files and follow the
instructions as outlined. /DEV/TTYUSB0 does not revert to 'NONE' now
but I am still unable to key the rig. One thing I need to check is to
plug the USB directly into the computer (I am running a KVM switch with
2 USB ports). I will be bringing my netbook and trying it with win7
starter and fldigi/HRD sometime later this weekend to at least verify
that the radio USB port is able to cause the rig to be keyed.
